It is the first political stake, the Karin Keller-Sutter (FDP) as Minister of justice strikes. At their request, the Federal Council has decided to IS-fighter with a Swiss passport from Syria is back. Of this decision, some twenty jihadis with a Swiss passport, currently in Northern Syria, Kurdish prison camps are affected. What will happen to them after the withdrawal of U.S. troops, is completely open.
An exception is for the children concerned: For them, the Federal Council wants to examine a Return, at least, if the "child requires good". According to the research of this paper, six of the twenty-Jihad-travelers are minors. They are born in the Syrian civil war, on the part of one of the parents there had been kidnapped.
Against Trumps the will
What is the Federal Council's hiding in his media release: With his decision, he goes on a confrontation with the US government Donald Trump . As in the past, it was not known, has directed in July 2018 to make a formal Demarche to the Federal Council and the Swiss jihadists back. In the other States of Europe, there were similar interventions in the United States.
The United States warn the Europeans against the Kurds, over a thousand foreign IS-fighters can no longer keep trapped forever. Independent Syria experts worry that the battle-hardened terrorists could soon walk free or that they will fall of the Assad Regime, the Turkish army or other little Prissy forces in the hands.
Support for the Return – against payment
for such reasons wanted to get back to Simonetta Sommaruga (SP), Keller-Sutter's predecessor as Minister of justice, the Syria-fighter and before this court. A different strategy now, but Keller-Sutter, seconded by all civil Federal Council members from the SVP, FDP and CVP. A top priority, as it is called in the official message of the Federal Council, "the security of Switzerland and the protection of their population".
In the Western Swiss Radio RTS Keller-Sutter argued recently also with the safety of the Swiss forces of law and Order. "Are you allowed to bring Swiss people in danger to evacuate people who are voluntarily drawn into the war?", Keller-Sutter asked at the time. However, it is open whether, for the repatriation actually Swiss forces of law and order would have had to travel to Syria. The USA have offered to Switzerland in July of 2018 also Support the Return – in return for payment.
Keller-Sutter and the civil Federal Council majority did not want the Swiss IS-coming fighters with impunity. Unlike Sommaruga, set to a prosecution "in the state in accordance with international Standards" – i.e., in Syria or in Iraq. Tried to be there by either a local court or by an international special court. Whether there will be such a per, but is in the stars.
Sommaruga, who headed the infrastructure Department, Detec, price gave up her Position in the Bundesrat, not without a fight. In a so-called Co-you are confronted Keller-Sutter and to ask critical questions:
What is the Federal Council makes, if the Swiss jihadists can be made on the spot never in the process?
What happens when you are left by the Kurds free and undetected in Switzerland, travel back?
it Is not contradictory for Switzerland from other countries the return of rejected asylum and criminal offenders requires, but their own Criminal does not take back?
The Federal Council majority was due to these concerns will not be swayed. The police and the authorities would do everything to prevent that IS-coming fighters in an uncontrolled manner in Switzerland, and appeared to be insured by the Federal Council. Among other things, the fighters are alerted in the Schengen information system SIS; also of the intelligence service to keep an eye on. In addition, the Federal Council wants to support the local judiciary or the international special court financially and legally.
Sommarugas accusation of double standards rejected Keller-Sutter Reportedly also: If the affected IS-returning fighters voluntarily in Switzerland, not going to reject you. The Federal Constitution gives every Swiss citizen has the right, at any time to return.
